I am so happy to have found these destinations only an hour outside of Vancouver! I am a real history nerd so the historic homes & old farm properties really made me smile. The restaraunt suggestions for lunch all seemed top notch so it was hard to choose. Once we finally did we were DROOLING by dessert. It was all so good! I decided to end the day with a winery visit and they were right next to a farm with so many cute animals!
